When we use the term "deadline" with regards to Nanodegree Program projects, we use it in one of two ways:
- To mean a final deadline for submitting all projects
- To refer to ongoing suggested deadlines for individual projects
A final deadline for submitting all projects
In order to graduate from a Nanodegree program, you must submit all projects by the last day of the program, and pass all projects once they are reviewed by a Udacity Reviewer (the reviews may take place after the last day of the term; the submission may not). Passing a project means a Udacity Reviewer has marked a project as "Meets Specifications."
Ongoing suggested deadlines for individual projects
The deadlines you see in your classroom are suggestions for when you should ideally pass each project. They are meant to help keep you on track so that you maintain an appropriate pace throughout the program–one that will see you graduate on time!
